The University of Exeter is working on a Grand Challenges sustainability project, and we are trying to find out more information on Exeter’s recycling process. Firstly, we would like to know what percentage of Exeter’s collected recycling is actually recycled. Secondly, we would like to know what standard of cleanliness the plastics, and other materials need to reach in order to pass recycling requirements. Lastly, we would like to know how Exeter ranks in comparison to other counties in the United Kingdom. If someone could get back to us as soon as possible that would be greatly appreciated.
Devon County Council is not a waste collection authority; this is the responsibility of Exeter City Council and we would therefore recommend that you seek this information from Exeter City Council. Their contact details can be found from their website at: https://exeter.gov.uk/
